Did you know that there are six Noongar seasons, in Western Australia’s South West region which the City of Wanneroo sits on, indicated by changes in local plants and animals?
Traditionally Noongar people hunted and gathered food according to the seasons, being guided by signs in nature as to which animal and plant resources were plentiful at those times. For example a hazy summer sky tells of the salmon running or the blossom on paperbarks bringing the mullet fish.
Noongar people have always utilised this deep knowledge of the environment to take care of it.
